The clear implication is not "I'm going to shoot you?"
The jury or judge in this case disagrees.
In fact the standard of "might own a gun" is realistic, that is going to be a factor.
If in fact you carry a gun and then you make that threatening gesture to someone in anger then that is 100% a threat right?
Is there any way to know if someone is carrying a gun?
Then isn't the correct standard to assume that they are?
did Clint end up shooting those thugs he threatened with his finger gun?
" If someone is carrying a gun and does the finger gun thing instead of shooting you, that is a pretty clear indication he isn't going to shoot you. If he wanted to shoot you, he would have shot you. "
Nope, that's not how it works. You haven't ever been threatened by someone with a gun who didn't shoot you? I have.

You feel sorry for a guy who caught a misdemeanor charge for being a moron? So because I understand the law I am a coward? How does that work exactly? Is ignorance bravery?
